The Color Red

“The Robin is the One
That interrupt the Morn
With hurried — few — express Reports
When March is scarcely on —
The Robin is the One
That overflow the Noon
With her cherubic quantity —
An April but begun —
The Robin is the One
That speechless from her Nest
Submit that Home — and Certainty
And Sanctity, are best” (Emily Dickinson)

Hi Everyone,
I hope everyone survived the full-moon week we recently had which was our last super moon for 2019, the worm moon. You may wonder why it’s called the worm moon, and this article (the meaning of the worm moon) provides insight as to why it’s given this rather strange name.  But it makes sense that it refers to when the “ground begins to thaw and earthworms reappear, soon followed by the return of robins.” And robins make me think of the color red.
Red is a warm color that evokes strong emotions. This color is associated with love, warmth, and comfort. It can be intense, or even angry; this color can create feelings of energy, excitement, and passion. But the red I am referring to is the red in my wardrobe and in my house. I am drawn to the color red even though my favorite colors tend to be varying shades of blue and green, the colors of the ocean. Your favorite color says a lot about you and according to this article (favorite color personality), “red is often the color chosen by someone outgoing, aggressive, vigorous and impulsive.” While I tend to consider myself to be more of an ambivert rather than an extrovert, I can relate to some of the characteristics of those who love the color red. And I do have red interspersed in my wardrobe and house as depicted below.

This post was supposed to be entitled “The Spring Super Moon,” but as life would have it, I was not feeling well and my husband drove out to the countryside in search of the full moon without me. He captured these photos with his phone which I thought came out really well.
